Everyone has their preferences when it comes to renting storage. Whether you’re looking to rent storage to make room in your home or just protect your valuable collectibles, everyone has a reason to look for a storage space. But how do you know which space is the fit for you?
There’s a lot to consider when looking for a storage facility. Factors like the size of the unit, the security, and whether the facility can hold the kind of material you’re storing are important in making sure that you can make an informed decision when researching a facility.
Let’s get you started on your journey with three simple tips to find the right storage space:
1. Understand the importance of climate-control
Depending on your items, you’ll need climate-control. Climate-controlled units are units that regulate both the temperature of the unit and the moisture in the air.
If you’re someone who stores moisture and humidity-sensitive items like electronics, wood, or even art pieces, climate-control is a needed investment to protect your items. Sometimes, it’s even simpler than that. If you live in an area with a wet-climate, you’ll need climate-control.
Nothing kills your sensitive items faster than moisture. Moisture and humidity can contribute to mold growth in furniture, appliances, and boxes. Without climate-control, you leave your items vulnerable to water damage. Climate-control is a worthwhile investment that guarantees the quality of your items throughout its time in storage.
2. Research what size unit you’ll need
Storage facilities can come with a variety of different sized spaces. The last thing you’ll want to do is step into a facility after signing an agreement without knowing what size unit you’ve just rented. Researching the size of the space you’ll need is vital in picking the right property.
Luckily, some facilities come with a Storage Calculator. The Storage Calculator lets you view units available depending on what you’re going to store. With properties like Long Beach Storage Center, this Calculator allows you to select the items that you’re going to store and then recommends a unit based on the total number of items you’ve selected.
Let’s say you want to store everything in a kitchen. With the Storage Calculator, you can select the room for the items you’re storing, and it’ll automatically generate a unit size based on your preference. This makes the unit selection process so much easier. Use this exciting technology to find what you need at Long Beach Storage Center today.
3. Know what type of security features are available to you
The type of security offered at a facility will be one of the most important things in making your decision. You’re not going to want to keep your valuable items in a facility without any security measures. At the same time, not every piece of security is good security.
To make an informed decision, you need to pay attention to things like the state of their locks, outdated camera systems, and the state of their alarm system. Gated access is also key in choosing a secure property. The last place you’d want to rent is a place where anyone can walk in and access your items.
Luckily for you, the Long Beach Storage Center comes with a plethora of advanced security features meeting your needs. Long Beach comes with 48 digital IP cameras that record 24/7.
